The Alfa is in for quick once over before we go away on hols. I love Alfas: The 156 was pretty special for the money, for handling and reliability. The newer 159 is awesome. Improves on the already impressive 156.
The specialist has lent me a 147. Gawd, it is a nasty, rat-infested piece of vermin. The gearbox is clunky and horrible, squeaks and rattles. And it has nasty tan interior. All I need now is for it to break down.
Can't wait to pick mine up.
